Santa Barbara Writers Conference Scrapbook Documentary Available On Amazon Prime Video Direct
The Santa Barbara Writers Conference Documentary Movie Is Now Available For Rental Or Purchase On Amazon Prime Video
During the magical week of the conference, the classy, old fashioned, Miramar resort became a world unto itself where on any given day you might find Ray Bradbury, Charles (Sparky) Schulz, Jonathan Winters, Robert Mitchum, Elmore Leonard, Eudora Welty, James Michener, Alex Haley, Gore Vidal, William F. Buckley, William Styron, Fannie Flagg, Clive Cussler, and many other literary lights who defined the last half of the twentieth century. Couple those stellar talents with beach front cottages, tennis courts, and railroad tracks that went through the middle of the property at all hours of the day and night, and a stationary railroad club car restaurant by the tracks, and you had the perfect setting for a gathering of creative talent dedicated to nurturing and celebrating their shared love of writing. The Miramar was the home of the Santa Barbara Writers Conference for the last quarter of the twentieth century until it closed in 2000, ending an enchanted era in the history of American literature.
Canadian recording artist André Nobels' musical contributions to the soundtrack captured the spirit and essence of the conference, that complements the print edition and is now available from Amazon.
The film was produced by Mystic Ink Publishing in collaboration with Santa Barbara's Ninety Degrees Media.
